Lowcountry Food Bank kicks off its 'Fresh for All' events tomorrow
Ingevity is sponsoring a full year of Lowcountry Food Bank Fresh for All events. The first food bank event kicks off October 10th in downtown Charleston.
According to reports, many low-income children, families and adults struggle with food insecurity and malnutrition, due to lack of access to healthy food, especially healthy produce.
To overcome barriers like food deserts, lack of transportation, and food costs that residents in underserved communities face, the Lowcountry Food Bank works to conduct the Fresh for All events.
These event are farmers’ market-style distributions which lets the families choose-at no cost to them- the type and quality of fresh produce that meets the family’s needs.
The Lowcountry Food Bank will also offer food sampling and recipes at the event.
